Answer:

John Carmack put together a version of Super Mario Bros. 3 with the lead character replaced by Dangerous Dave as a demonstration of smooth-side-scrolling on the PC. The demo was succesful and eventually led to the development of Commander Keen!

    The pioneering game Super Mario brothers was a mashup based on mario brothers and donkey kong.

    Connect is Mario ( Nintendo, Shigeru Miyamoto)
